Five Points Museum of Contemporary Art invites you to their newest exhibition by Corpus Christi Lowrider artists, the Leal Brothers. Lowrider Excellence: The Leal Brothers will feature national award-winning cars that have been painted, sculpted and fully remade.
The Lowrider as an art form has evolved since the mid-20th century. While its roots can be traced back to post-WWII Los Angeles, the art and cultural phenomenon of lowriders has spread throughout the United States and beyond. Cementing their place as masters of this form, the Leal Brothers and their obsessively detailed automobiles are multiple-year winners in premier national competitions, including the Lowrider Tour Las Vegas Super Show.
In 2018, their work dominated the show, taking both first and second place for Lowrider Car of the Year. Lowrider Excellence: The Leal Brothers is curated by Ann Harithas, the museum’s founder and executive director.
The exhibit is hosted by the Five Points Museum of Contemporary Art, which was founded to give the Victoria and South Texas community broad access to contemporary art by national and regional artists and curators while celebrating and drawing upon the cultural diversity of South Texas. The museum is also dedicated to furthering arts education in the community through supplemental and extracurricular programs.
Museum admission is always free. For more information, please visit www.fivepointsmuseum.com.
